Tomorrow’s Promises

A word mistake
There was a gunshot

Blood for blood
The cry of the knife

The battle cries
Sea and air

The continents
are covered in blood

Slipped in the blood field
Falling Shadows

Music of skulls
accompanied by torsos

Those who tearfully search
for their relatives on mud mattresses

Winds catching
the smell of death

A mass exodus of those
who have lost everything

Those who started the war
A peace treaty was signed

Not even able to cry
Not knowing what was going on
Without leaving the shock of the gunfire
Tomorrow’s Promises
Our little children…..
